Lee Defeats Cho in Samsung Baduk Tournament

Lee Chang Ho, the best Baduk (a Korean board game also called Go) player in Korea, defeated Korean-Japanese Cho Chi Hoon in the semi-final of the 3rd Samsung Fire Insurance Cup World Baduk Tournament, held in Yusung on November 2.
Japan's #1 player, Cho, surrendered the match at the 162nd stone and Lee advanced to the final. The victory gives Lee a 7-1 margin in games played against his rival Cho so far. Although Cho has swept the 3 major titles in Japan, he once again could not overcome Lee in a rematch of the finals from 2 years ago.
